Publication date: April 2018 Source:Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Reviews on Cancer, Volume 1869, Issue 2 Author(s): S. O'Grady, M.P. Morgan The implementation of mammographic screening programmes in many countries has been linked to a marked increase in early detection and improved prognosis for breast cancer patients. Breast tumours can be detected by assessing several features in mammographic images but one of the most common are the presence of small deposits of calcium known as microcalcifications, which in many cases may be the only detectable sign of a breast tumour. In addition to their efficacy in the det...

Publication date: May 2018 Source:Academic Radiology, Volume 25, Issue 5 Author(s): Randy C. Miles, Tracy Onega, Christoph I. Lee With the advent of new screening technologies, including digital breast tomosynthesis, screening ultrasound, and breast magnetic resonance imaging, there is growing concern that existing disparities among traditionally underserved populations will worsen. These newer screening modalities purport improved cancer detection over mammography alone but are not offered at all screening facilities and often require a larger co-pay or out-of-pocket expense. Thus, the potential for worsening disparities...

Discussion and Implications: Research linking internet use and preventive health behaviors is important because such behaviors are associated not only with health of the older population but also with substantial reductions in health care expenditures. Our findings suggested that internet use of older adults is associated with their own preventive health behaviors, as well as their spouses' preventive health behaviors. Interventions and programs to facilitate older adults' preventive health behaviors should consider couple-based approaches. PMID: 29790951 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Over the past several years, there have been numerous changes in the guidelines for screening mammography. Additionally, different societies have released guidelines with variance in the recommendations of age to initiate and frequency of imaging. The current recommendations as well as the importance of screening mammography for early detection and survival are discussed.

CONCLUSION: Expression of VEGF, COX-2, and MMP-9 is highly correlated to the mammaographic appearance of spiculation, vascular abnormalities, and lymph node metastasis. However, the present results suggest that expression of VEGF, COX-2, and MMP-9 is either not or weakly correlated to mammographic appereance of calcification. PMID: 29767863 [PubMed - in process]
